What is the LT Exchange Programme?

A collaboration between Learning Technologies and Towards Maturity, the Exchanges Programme was launched in 2011 with the aim to share effective practice, thought leadership and stimulate innovation in L&D.

Informal, face-to-face group discussions, the Exchanges Programme tackles the issues facing today’s L&D leaders: supporting change, leveraging networks, mobile and micro and how to get ahead with technology in 2017.  Lasting for one hour, each Exchange is led by an industry-leading expert who is speaking at the conference and is available to all L&D practitioners visiting the exhibition.

This year’s Exchanges will be co-hosted by Training Journal and the programme includes: Mark Britz, performance strategist and author of ‘The Simple Shift’ blog, Andrew Hurren together with Laura Overton, author of 40+ major research reports, Harold Jarche author of ‘What do we do about inequality?’ and more, Clive Shepherd who’s most recent publication is titled ‘More Than Blended Learning’, John Stepper author of ‘Working Out Loud’, Julian Stodd, author of ’The Social Leadership Handbook’, Will Thalheimer, author of ‘Performance-Focused Smile Sheets: A Radical Rethinking of a Dangerous Art Form’ and Emma Weber, author of ‘Turning Learning into Action: A Proven Methodology for Effective Transfer of Learning.’

In Focus: How to Build and Change Habits in the Workplace

The ability to change behaviour through habit creation is crucial to becoming a top performing organisation, particularly as learners have the skills to build new capabilities quickly and ‘unbuild’ old behaviours that are no longer relevant. But how do you actually create habits in the workplace?

Embedding Change at West Midlands Police

West Midlands police force serves a population of almost 2.8 million. With a shrinking force dealing with increasing demand, a real change needed to happen if the officers were to remain effective in their roles.

Top Tips for Building Habits

Top Tips for Building Habits

As learning professionals, we want to design interventions that lead to lasting change. Shifting behaviour involves a process that continues long after the programme finishes. Our research has shown that mature learning organisations are more successful at integrating learning and work, but they don’t abandon formal learning. One of their strategies is to design learning campaigns and programmes that build and encourage new habits.
